Hankerson flashed big-play skill as a rookie in Washington, but he couldn't stay healthy and he remained mired on the back end of the team's depth chart. Former Washington Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan brought Hankerson to Atlanta as depth behind Roddy White and Julio Jones as well as a contributor to the slot role. Hankerson's knowledge of the offense gives him a leg up on the Falcons reserves for increased playing time if injuries strike.

Summary

The new coaching staff in Atlanta includes offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, who brought over Leonard Hankerson from Washington with him to Atlanta. We'll see if Roddy White (whose #2 role on the team has led to two straight sub-1,000 yards receiving campaigns) endures a challenge for the #2 wide receiver role during training camp. Hankerson is a big (6'2, 211 pounds) receiver (and at 27 years of age Hankerson is seven years younger than the 34-year old White) who has struggled to stay on the field during his pro career due to knee injuries. Stay tuned to see how his health holds up during training camp/preseason. (May 14)
